you can find happy planner stickers at michael’s or hobby lobby. that’s a great place to start. (both places offer a 40% coupon off anything and product specific coupons on their apps.) i particularly like the seasonal pack (it’s worth the investment), the planner basics pack, and the quote packs. the new memory keeping packs are really pretty but the stickers are pretty big so i like those for monthly spreads.
the recollections washi is my favorite “affordable” washi. you can find it at michaels. if you have the app, you can always find a coupon. there’s also washi at hobby lobby too, of course.
then when you’re ready to make it rain with planner stickers, graduate to etsy and the standalone shops.
here’s a quick tip: before you buy anything on etsy or a standalone site, check the shop’s instagram for a coupon code. most of the time, there’s one available, they have a sale running, or there’s a pr girl with a code.
so these are my current favorite shops:
scribble prints co – this is a high-end shop, but often the price is worth it to me. andrea has an attention to detail, and i really like her design aesthetic. i usually buy her mini kits. it’s just enough for me. the ultimate kits are nice, but they are HUGE. but if you’re into stretching kits, they’re great for that! i’ve found that if you get an ultimate kit, they’re enough to use for both a weekly and monthly spread.

virgo & paper – i love this shop! she has unique designs, and her kits are very well thought out. her lettering stickers are super cute too.
sadie’s stickers – the quality is great and the price is too. the kits are a good value and offer just the right amount of stickers for white space planners. her photo kits are just beautiful. she also has great foiled functional stickers.
gp sticker studio – this is an australian shop so you may have to wait a little longer, but they’re so pretty. i order the personal size, and it fits my white space style. she now has a subscription box and kit. it’s the only mystery kit that i subscribe to. (gabi’s youtube channel)
the crafty banana – this is a definite favorite! she draws all of her kits so they are super original and cute! her mini kits are small but if you have functional stuff or leftovers lying around, you’ll be fine.
nikki plus three – i have been ordering from this shop for a long time! she has recently introduced foil and changed the game! she’s known for her floral kits and now they have foil too. she also has some good school stickers.
shop jessica hearts – i love this shop! her designs are so beautiful! i especially like her monthly kits.
planning roses – this is a canadian shop so it takes a little while to get to me – about a month. but i really like her designs. she also chooses unique clip art often. i can find kits in this shop that don’t look like anyone else’s.
rose colored daze – if you need anything foil related, this is the premier shop. she’s always the first to come up with trend setting ideas. her quality is top notch.
magic prints co – another foil shop! her stickers are affordable, and she has tons of functional icons.
clever gal crafts – this is my other favorite foil shop. she has the best quality foil i’ve ever seen. her designs are classic.
once more with love – for character stickers, this is one of my favorites. she has lots to choose from. but be warned…they are addicting!
fox and pip – my other favorite character shop. she has such cute, unique designs. you have to stay up on release days though because she sells out quickly. to stay on top of it, join her facebook group.
bubba bear studios – this shop has such unique designs. she offers pretty much everything you need include some pretty adorable character stickers.
jax and pepper – this shop’s two dollar tuesday sales are amazing! her other kits are great too. they’re modern and cool.
little paper prints – this shop offers really unique kits. they’re often custom and they are absolutely beautiful. she offers several different sizes of kits so you can pick what works for you.
nicole hutch designs – i really like this shop, especially for functional items. they’re on really good matte paper (not premium matte, but nice!) and great quality.
wild summer designs – her kits are very affordable. she does crazy sales. i particularly like the mini kits because they’re the perfect size for me. now, i’m not saying that they’re bad quality because they’re not. but you get what you pay for. they’re a great value!
fox and cactus – even though they ship from australia, these stickers are worth the wait. and really, they do ship quickly. her stickers are so fun and quirky.
simply gilded – if you are looking for high-end washi, this is the shop to go to. her designs are beautiful and the quality is amazing. i suggest buying during presales because you’re guaranteed to get what you want. the regular sales are cut throat and sell out in minutes.
sew much crafting – for TN or rings inserts, this shop is one of the best. her paper is amazing – so smooth and thick.
stylish planner – for planner covers, this is one of my favorites. she has beautiful designs.
erin condren – not an etsy shop. but she offers mini kits in the company patterns along with the trusty customizable stickers and the sticker books.
ONE MORE THING…
undo adhesive remover – life changing stuff! you can remove a sticker, reuse it, and there’s no damage to the paper. it’s a miracle!! just don’t use it anywhere near whiteout.
papermate inkjoy gel pens – these are my favorite pens. they’re so smooth, and the ink is bold.
tombow correction tape – the best white-out! it’s white and comes out smoothly.
